    Hi all, I know I am being thick, but I am a bit confused.

    I have a Lacie media player that is superb and plays 99% of all movies. The problem is that it only plays movies that are 4gig or less and not 720p.

    Does anyone know of a player that can play bigger files and 1080p please? Is it something to do with fat32?

    Thanking you in advance.

    Frank.

    Yes Fat32 will be an issue with HD files as they are most of the time bigger then 4gb. Just format your hard drive to NTFS but please note anything on that drive will be deleted back up anything you want to keep. There are a lot of media players there is the Patriot Box Office, Asus O!Play, Popcorn Hour, Western Digital TV, and Boxee Box by D-Link just to name a few. All these players support 1080p and slew of codec and container support. Do not wireless stream with HD it will constantly buffer and stutter.
